Area Information for Apex, North Carolina

Apex, North Carolina is a suburb of Raleigh that has steadily grown into its own identity over the years. As of the 2010 Census, this Wake County town had a population of about 37,000 residents. Incorporated in 1873, the town received its name because it was the highest point on the Chatham Railroad in the area at the time. Today, much of Apex’s history as a railroad town is still celebrated. For instance, the old Apex Union Depot, which was originally a passenger station for the Seaboard Air Line Railroad, later became the Apex Community Library. Now, it houses the Apex Chamber of Commerce. This sort of commitment to its past and historical buildings has earned Apex the reputation for being one of the most intact railroad towns in the state! Thus, if you’re the kind of interested Raleigh area home buyer who prefers to live in a community with a rich heritage, Apex might be just the place for you!
